Problem 11.20 

Archer Daniels Midland Company is considering buying a new farm that it plans to operate for 10 years. The farm will require an initial investment of $12.00 million. This investment will consist of $2.90 million for land and $9.10 million for trucks and other equipment. The land, all trucks, and all other equipment is expected to be sold at the end of 10 years at a price of $5.07 million, $2.26 million above book value. The farm is expected to produce revenue of $2.10 million each year, and annual cash flow from operations equals $1.97 million. The marginal tax rate is 35 percent, and the appropriate discount rate is 10 percent. Calculate the NPV of this investment.(Round intermediate calculations and final answer to 2 decimal places, e.g. 15.25.)

Problem 12.24 
Chip s Home Brew Whiskey management forecasts that if the firm sells each bottle of SnakeBite for $20, then the demand for the product will be 15,000 bottles per year, whereas sales will be 88 percent as high if the price is raised 16 percent. Chip s variable cost per bottle is $10, and the total fixed cash cost for the year is $100,000. Depreciation and amortization charges are $20,000, and the firm has a 30 percent marginal tax rate. Management anticipates an increased working capital need of $3,000 for the year. What will be the effect of the price increase on the firm s FCF for the year?(Round answers to nearest whole dollar, e.g. 5,275.)
At $20 per bottle the Chip s FCF is $ and at the new price Chip s FCF is $.

Capital Co. has a capital structure, based on current market values, that consists of 50 percent debt, 11 percent preferred stock, and 39 percent common stock. If the returns required by investors are 9 percent, 13 percent, and 15 percent for the debt, preferred stock, and common stock, respectively, what is Capital s aftertax WACC? Assume that the firm s marginal tax rate is 40 percent.(Round intermediate calculations to 4 decimal places, e.g. 1.2514 and final answer to 2 decimal places, e.g. 15.25%.)
After tax WACC
